Summer Trails Anyone?

April 5, 2016

It has been a great winter for mountain biking within the club, with the Thursday night XC runs very well supported regardless of the weather, and with a small but growing group having regularly runs to Davagh and the local natural trails whenever possible.

Addicted to Trails!

October 24, 2015

I thought it might be worth giving a brief insight into my new found and unbridled enthusiasm for trail (or single track) MTB riding. As many of you will know, I am pretty new to this cycling lark in general, having only really started this year after a few false starts.

September 6, 2015

The second Wee Wheelers trial event was held on Saturday 5th September and can be definitely classed as another success if the skills on show, the variety of ages involved and the smiles on faces are anything to go by.

Wee Wheelers Wacky Races

July 20, 2015

Well, the Wee Wheelers initiative certainly kicked off in style yesterday. Throngs of budding young cyclists gathered at the sea wall at Station Road, Ballykelly bathed in sunshine to tackle the 4 miles of clue strewn tracks set out by the ‘devious’ Samuel Moore. All manners of 2 wheeled steed could be seen journeying along the sea wall at various speeds but every machine had a rider with a very…
